Montgomery has been blessed by the arts, and in the case of the choral arts, it has been especially blessed to receive 38 years of professional quality music from the Montgomery Chorale, one of the city’s oldest musical performing arts organization and its official performing choral group. The Chorale has made a significant contribution to the musical enrichment of the community.
The Chorale’s dedication to presenting professional quality choral performances and its requirement that all members must audition in order to participate have helped produce a musically compatible blend of voices at ease with any musical composition from Beethoven to Berlin.
For all of its national and international accomplishments, the Chorale’s first priority is the citizens of Montgomery and the surrounding region, and it has been involved in a broad range of community events, including Jubilee Weekend, the Christmas Light Show at the Montgomery Zoo, Festival in the Park, Zoo Weekend, and in working jointly in concerts with other arts organizations, including the Montgomery Symphony Orchestra, whose members frequently accompany Chorale concerts, the Alabama Dance Theater, Montgomery Ballet, and Capitol Sounds.
The Chorale’s audiences have been the real beneficiaries of the group’s unique ability to master both classical and popular compositions, from Mozart to Gershwin. Year in and year out, the Chorale’s talented singers have provided something for everyone.
Montgomery is a city rich in tradition, and it is replete with landmarks glorifying that tradition. One of its finest and oldest musical performing arts traditions is the Montgomery Chorale, still young at 38 and looking forward to many more years and many more generations of music lovers to entertain.
